I was waiting for it to dry out a bit before finishing the drainage ditch, but with a lot of rain and then snow coming I got it done.

I put drainage pipe in the new ditch connecting it to the existing drainage pipe. Then I put in gravel, boards and covered it with dirt. The clay was really mucky and impossible to stamp in, so I just piled it on. It will probably take a couple of years to settle, and I’ll have to add more later.
